DevOps engineer

Job description

DevOps isn’t a specific role – it’s a methodology for quickly building software and maintaining reliable services. So, flexibility and a willingness to learn new skills are imperative traits for DevOps. DevOps must have a wide breadth of knowledge across the entire software delivery and deployment lifecycle. Nobody expects DevOps to be an expert in everything from docker, drone, jenkins, grafana, databases, backups, scripting, terraform to kubernetes, but understanding how these tools function together at a high level is necessary for a DevOps culture focused on collaboration and transparency.
